Overview: This one and a half hour event is a practical exploration of what benefits mindfulness can bring to the practice of sales and marketing, and what the skills of sales and marketing can bring to people who wish to develop their mindfulness practice.

What is mindfulness and mindful sales and marketing?

Mindfulness is the art and practice of bringing more consciousness and awareness to our life. The function of mindfulness is to make us both inwardly happier and outwardly more effective at our chosen tasks, whether they be professional or personal.

Mindfulness for Sales and Marketing is a way of using the mindfulness tools of awareness, attention and intention in order to become better at marketing and sales, whilst at the same time facilitating a higher level of sustainable inner peace, confidence and balance within ourselves. This event will introduce a series of short, practical mindfulness exercises that create a calm, creative, clear inner space where you can focus upon improving both your mind and different aspects of your sales and marketing practice.

In this 90minute evening presentation Toby will specifically be covering exercises relating to:

  • Listening to and taking the perspective of others, and in particular your client or potential customer
  • Using mindfulness to reduce stress and think clearly
  • How to process your own psychological obstacles to effective sales and marketing practice
  • Using mindfulness as a method for increasing your motivation to perform to your highest potential and give the greatest value to your clients and/or the people you serve

This event will be of particular interest if you are:

  • Someone interested in the bringing together your own experience of business and mindfulness together in a practical and dynamic way
  • Wishing to develop your creative enthusiasm in the domain of sales and marketing
  • Looking to improve your success and performance as a marketing and sales person or team
  • Wanting to reduce the amount of personal and relationship stress and conflict you experience in your marketing and sales activities?
  • Find more enjoyment and personal fulfilment from sales and marketing at the same time as creating deeper relationship bonds with your customers or those whom you serve
  • Working in marketing and sales related activities for your company
  • Looking for different ways to improve your marketing and sales team’s performance
  • An owner of your own business and actively involved in marketing and sales
  • An entrepreneur with a product or an idea that you wish to bring to the market

If so then this is an evening that you should definitely come along to!

Can Meditation Improve Your Romantic Relationships? (Free meditation and online course)

Dear Integral Meditators,

  • How can meditation improve your romantic relationships?
  • Is it possible for your romantic relationships to actually improve your meditation? (rather than distract you from it!)
  • Can I reduce my stress and improve the quality and quantity of my romantic love at the same time?

Back in 2010 I did a series of meditation classes entitled “Romantic Love as a Path to Healing and Enlightenment”. I have decided to put it up as an online course, the details of which you can read below.

Here is the meditation from module 4 for you to listen to for free, it looks specifically at the role of passion: “Meditation on building passion as the central fulcrum of creative love in your life and relationships”  (30mins approx)

Romantic love is an amazing and wonderful space to explore. To get a sense of this check out the article on the ‘Five types of romantic love that we can experience‘.

Yours in the spirit of mindful love,

Toby


The Six Stages of Love: Romantic Love as a Path to Inner Healing and Enlightenment – An Online Course

This is an online course that can be accessed, downloaded and listened to in your own time at your own pace. If you purchase it you will be given a course webpage and a password reference that will give you full access to the course content.

Cost of the Course: Sing$65

CLICK HERE TO MAKE PAYMENT FOR ROMANTIC LOVE ONLINE COURSE BY PAYPAL

Introduction

This series of five meditations and talks considers six particular stages of the development of romantic love. These six stages in turn act as a metaphor or analogy through which we can understand what the essence of love is, and how to grow it in our life as a force of healing and enlightenment.

You will see how you can apply an understanding of these six stages BOTH to our intimate relationships and to our own personal growth.

Often personal, romantic love and universal or spiritual love are perceived to be antagonistic in our life. These course aims to give us clear understandings backed up with practical meditation techniques for learning how to integrate different types of love into our life in a way that makes them complementary and mutually supporting.

Quote by Toby from the opening talk in module 1:

This is a series of five classes on the healing power of love, and in particular of romantic love. When you say ‘romantic love’ to somebody, most people’s minds will move toward the idea of a relationship between two human beings who fall in love with each other. What these meditations and talks are about is looking at romantic love in a bigger context; seeing how it plays out not just in our relationships with people, but also in terms of our relationship to ourself, to the universe, to nature and landscape, to our experience of art, and to work that we feel passionate about.

It is about seeing related patterns of romantic love and how they play out in all of these different domains and areas of our life. This course looks at how we can actually place the path to enlightenment into the paradigm or framework of the different stages of romantic love. 

I hope it will also improve your human relationships! If you understand the dynamic of romantic love in general it puts you in a very good position to achieve a greater harmony, balance and bliss in your own personal romantic relationship

Course content – The Five Modules:

Each module contains a 20minute meditation and a 20-30minute talk. The course also provides you with written summaries of the modules, diagrams and relevant articles for you to read.

 

Module 1: An introduction to the six stages of love’s growth and development as a path of healing and enlightenment

Module 2: Attraction and desire; How to include and enjoy these types of live in your life (and understand how they are not contradictory to your spiritual experience of love)

Module 3: Intimacy and trust; How to grow the roots of love deeply and stably in your relationships

Module 4: Building passion as the central fulcrum of creative love in your life and relationships

Module 5: The transformative power of bliss and ecstasy – Connecting to the experience of enlightened love.
